Mission Action Statement
Engaging in welcoming, pastoral care, faith formation for all ages, the sanctification of each other and the world and support of vocations (Laity and Ordained). Celebrating the richness of care and support for each other by providing service to the poor, homeless, refugees, the sick and bereaved and the elderly and working for social justice and the protection of the environment in union with all people of good faith.
We welcome and journey with all through prayer and service, open to growth and committed to building a community of Christ’s disciples who share the joy of the Gospel.
Holy Family Parish is an inclusive, welcoming community of members filled with The Holy Spirit where all are valued, respected and supported. Our faith in Jesus nourished by the Eucharist urges us to bring people to him and to form missionary disciples who will go out to transform the world.
Archdiocese of Brisbane
AMID the bustle of an uncertain world around us, Brisbane Catholics are being invited to visit and experience a unique overseas mission.
The Missionaries of the Poor are calling for volunteers to visit and serve in their mission house in Labuan Bajo on the Indonesian island of Flores, and to assist in the daily care of disabled residents.
It might sound like a daunting task, however, in 2017 Fr Nev Yun, administrator at the Holy Family Catholic parish at Indooroopilly, led a small group on a nine-night visit to the MOP mission, and described the richness of the experience in terms of simplicity, gentleness and serving.

You would be aware that earlier this year the Catholic Church in Australia committed publicly to joining the Redress Scheme. Last week the Arch-bishop signed the Deed of Participation on behalf of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, which was another step in bring-ing healing to those who have been wounded by abuse in the Church. Claims for redress will be made against the Corporation rather than an individual parish, so you need not be concerned about financial implications at a local level. You might wish to make your parishioners aware that the Archdiocese has signed on and encourage them to en-trust survivors to the intercession of St Mary MacKillop as we have done in the Cathedral.
